SPRING TRAINING 2022
Hopefully the owners and players will come to an agreement and Spring Training will go on as planned– Of course the planning at this point is tentative, however once the decision is made you don’t want to be left out in the cold. Make your reservations now!
Drive down and stay at a Drury Hotel on the way. Use our promocode “SPORTS” for a discount. Once you get to Jupiter– stay at the Homewood Suites (technically called Palm Beach Gardens, but very near Roger Dean Stadium)
We like the Drury Hotels because whether you are traveling with children or you want a grown-up atmosphere they have you covered with their Kickback (cocktails, sodas, and dinner) as well as hot breakfast in the morning. They have pools, workout rooms, office centers and more. To see the menu for the Kickback CLICK HERE.

SPRING TRAINING ARCHIVES
A look at some of our fun parties… For many years we have been having special Spring Training Bash Parties which benefitted charity– Rainbows for Kids and Leukemia Society of Palm Beach
Photo from the 2020 Baseball Bash:
This may have been the last “party” or large crowd gathering you attended if you were there. It was held on March 12, 2020 and just as it started we received word that MLB had cancelled the remainder part of Spring Training– due to the start of the COVID-19 closings.
The day the 2020 Baseball Bash was the day of the last Spring Training game. We had a player scheduled and due to “circumstances beyond their control” he could not attend. There was a great, enthusiastic crowd and the fans had a fun time despite what was happening.

For the past several years The Homewood Suites has teamed up with STLSportspage.com to put on a charity event which benefits Rainbows for Kids in St. Louis and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Palm Beach. The event is free of charge and open to all fans of STLSportsPage.com and any guests staying at the Homewood Suites. Carson Kelly was the guest last year, shown in photo with Mike Trim of WPTV News in West Palm Beach and Rob Rains.
The Spring Training Charity Bash features free food and drink as well as a silent auction, but the highlight of the event has always been a player from the St. Louis Cardinals who attends and entertains on a sports panel with Trim and Rains.
Trim, a Cardinals fan, originally from Hermann, MO is a television anchor and always donates his time to do the panel with Rob Rains of STLSportsPage.com. The photo, above, right is the 2017 event featuring Aledmys Diaz.
After the panel discussion there was a barbecue and the Cardinals fans got to eat hamburgers and hot dogs.
The best part of the party is raising money for two great charities. Proceeds from the Baseball Bash are divided between the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Palm Beach and Rainbows for Kids in St. Louis. Tyler Hammond, shown in photo below was a member of Rainbows for Kids when he was a child. He had multiple organ transplants, but was able to participate on the Rainbows for Kids Baseball Team and all the activities designed for families with children in treatment. He has now graduated from college and is a volunteer with the organization. He is shown in the picture with Daniel Ponce de Leon.
Plan a trip to Spring Training and join us at the party!
